Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Real Estate litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
If the HOA rules are not being followed in terms of noticing a meeting and in regard to a member's right to vote, the only way you can stop the board - - and primarily this president - - is to file a lawsuit to compel the HOA to abide by the rules as written AND to seek an injunction against any orders or decisions or votes that have been made subsequent to improper notice or other procedural problems.
Unfortunately, the only way to stop something like this would be to sue and get a court order. Otherwise, the HOA will continue to operate as it pleases instead of how it is supposed to under the rules.
